The Kirwan Commission Meets the Public

At a series of public hearings, the Kirwan Commission looks to the public as it prepares recommendations for a new school funding formula.

The Kirwan Commission is holding public hearings for parents, students, educators, and other interested individuals to share their views on improving the public education system in Maryland. The commission’s recommendations are due to Governor Hogan in December and expected to be in legislation before the General Assembly in January.

“Maryland’s public schools are good, but they can be much better,” said Dr. William E. “Brit” Kirwan, chair of the Commission. “Our students deserve to receive the best education in the world — and they will need it to be competitive in the 21st century.”
